Labor Chairwoman Shelly Yachimovich commented on the nurses' strike and criticized Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his failure to intervene on Wednesday.
"There was no problem launching Operation Pillar of Defense so close to the elections, but talks with the nurses are prevented for that reason? This is hypocrisy at its best. Israeli nurses' workload is double than in OECD countries," she said. (Moran Azulay)
